4 of the 48 special free schools in the pipeline have funding agreements in place and are due to open in 2020; 1 in April 2020 and 3 in September 2020. Up to a further 9 schools are also expected to open in 2020, although these do not yet have funding agreements in place. The remaining 35 schools are at a different stage in their development and we will confirm opening dates for them in due course.
